My name is Erma Vietorisz, B.Ed., M.A. and am seeking election on October 20, 2018 for the position of School Trustee in Chilliwack. I have 37 years of experience in the field of education with a lengthy career in helping students with learning difficulties. I have a keen interest in helping all students succeed. My particular areas of expertise were in helping students acquire literacy skills and to deal with emotional issues. As Chair of several School Based Teams for many years, I worked with teachers, parents, paraprofessionals and administrators to find solutions to difficult problems and am prepared to listen to the growing and diversifying community of Chilliwack to help build a strong, healthy and safe learning environment for all students.
In addition to the above, I have also represented teachers at the local level of the BCTF for many years. I hope to help build a positive relationship between parents and teachers and the Board of Education.
I have had many years of experience as a teacher in the BC public school system, and it's time for me to put that experience to good use. I think I have a lot to offer and it would be an honour to serve the students, parents, teachers and taxpayers of Chilliwack School District 33.'
